I have not had time to plan all the meals for this week. I did get all of the dinners planned though. I am trying to use up a few things from the pantry and freezer.

I cleaned all the light fixtures and ceiling fans in our downstairs. Plus, I did some other general cleaning. I corrected the kids schoolwork and did next week’s lesson plans. […]

Last Night’s Dinner

Chicken Pie 2

This dish takes less then 10 minutes to put together, then put it in the oven and 40-45 minutes later you have a great dinner. Last night I served salad and peas on the side. […]

French Toast

Library Books

cookbooks

I love books. I think I have mentioned that a few times already on this blog, but I do. In my opinion you can never have to many books. Well, you probably can but I think books are worth having. One of my favorite sources for books is the library. You can borrow them, enjoy them, and take them back. The do not take up […]

Menu Planning Mondays

mpm2

I have been doing menu planning for quite a few years now, but this is only my second time to post them for meal planning Monday. I find menu planning saves me so much time. I would encourage everyone to give it a try. You can just put down simple things if you do not cook much. Just try to get in the habit. If […]

I tried another recipe from my Martha Stewart Cookie Cookbook. I am so glad I bought this cookbook. I tried the Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. These were really, really good. I sent a whole plate full to work with my husband because I could not stop eating them. I posted the recipe just like it is listed. The only thing I did […]
